Call for IARFC Directors
Our Board of Directors election process begins this month. In 2015, there are two current Directors up for re-election: Isabel Cooper and John Rogers. A “new” Director will be needed to take my place as I will be stepping into the Chairman of the Board position. And Lloyd Lowe’s position will need to be filled. That means there are four Board Director positions to fill. The current Chairman, Ed Morrow will continue to serve as a Director and CEO.

6 Reasons Why to Charge Fees
The Life Insurance industry sales force is currently beset with devastating change caused by threats of inflation, disintermediation, cannibalism, proliferation of new products, competition from other financial institutions, pirates rolling over products from company to company to get a first-year commission every few years, and the final complication of a general public that believes itself to be more informed about financial matters than it actually is. With Baby Boomers retiring, some predictions have been made that today’s sales force of 450,000 salesmen will be reduced in 10 years to 45,000. The survivors will be the people who are able to cope with these changes and become the financial product salespersons of the future. A large portion of these people will be fee-charging financial consultants.
